COLORADO ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH COALITION

The Colorado Environmental Health Coalition (CEHC) is working to build capacity and support for a coordinated toxics reduction strategy to protect people across Colorado from chemical toxics that are ubiquitous in our air, water, communities, and consumer products.

We are working to leverage the diverse expertise of this network of 60 organizations made up of legislators, academics, health and environmentally focused organizations, and agencies through education, research, and advocacy.

Colorado currently has few laws that protect the people, wildlife, and environment and at a time where a toxic-free environment is critical to good health, particularly in disadvantaged communities, the CEHC is developing solutions and strategies to address this gap.
